In hopes of getting my name onto yet another SDA page, I started playing some Advance Wars 1, with three and a half goals in mind.
Finish all the war room missions.
Do so with 999 points per mission.
Do so in the minimum amount of days possible.
Minimize "real" (ie. stopwatch) time as much as you can while you're at it.
And so I finished these videos. These were all done with a legit cartridge, recorded from a TV using a Gameboy Player. While these are not "cheated" movies, your mileage in copying them may vary... Do not expect to just pop the cart in and equal these in one try. Why?
Some of these missions you will spend hours replicating, trying to get each unit to move precisely the right way. Well, at least I did (Moji Island, I hate you). You, on the other hand, can save halfway through. Lucky. :P
For various reasons, I cannot finish these videos, so don't bother asking.
A list of which missions I completed:
1. Spann Island
2. Moji Island
3. Duo Falls
4. Sole Harbor
5. Pivot Isle
8. Point Stormy
9. Ridge Island
10. Mial's Hope
12. Toil Ferry
13. Twin Isle
15. Egg Islands
17. Stamp Islands
20. Last Mission
For 13 total missions. All with 999 pts, all in the lowest possible amount of days I could.
I hope you enjoy them. Many of the strategies are of my own invention. However, credit goes where it is due. And three things helped me a lot in this.

Good work on these. I've tried doing precise day-by-day strategies before, and the randomness does get pretty annoying. On a side note, I never realized how bad the AI could be in this game... The enemies didn't even attack you when you were capturing their HQs in Final Mission! Thankfully, the AI is better in AW2.
